Beşiktaş target Anders Lindegaard has joined West Brom on a free transfer from Manchester United.

The Red Devils released a statement on their official website confirming the deal.

The Danish international keeper said: “Since moving to England I’ve been impressed with how well West Brom have done in the Premier League.

“I had a good chat with Tony Pulis – I must call him the ‘gaffer’ now – and he convinced me it would be a good move for me and the club. From there things moved very quickly. I was very keen to get it done so I can just concentrate on the thing that matters most, the football. I am very happy to join West Brom and hope I can make a big contribution this season.”

Lindegaard joined United in January 2011 during the Alex Ferguson era and made a total of 29 appearances for the Premier League giants.

Beşiktaş were set to loan Manchester United keeper Anders Lindegaard according to the Sabah.

The Black Eagles also missed out on the opportunity to sign fellow United keeper Victor Valdes despite reaching an agreement-in-principle with the Spanish international.

The Istanbul giants recently sold second choice keeper Cenk Gönen to Galatasaray and were expected to sign a replacement but will have to wait until the turn of the year now as the Turkish transfer window has come to an end.
